You know what, you're right. The fact that it takes months to train a pilot to refuel from a tanker doesn't mean a damn thing. They have tankers,
that means they can hit Israel, and probably win. Who cares about training, they have the capability to do it, which means that they can do it.
Training be damned.
The C-130 has a tanker variant, if you can get the drop tanks required to do it. But again, they don't train to refuel in flight, and don't have
the training to pull off a long range strike
. Technical capability be damned, they don't have the training capability to do it. Very few of
their pilots have trained or practiced in flight refueling, because they don't have to
. The IRiAF is a home based, short ranged force. You
can have the technical capabilities, but if you don't have the training to do it, you aren't going to pull it off.
